VicHealth Masculinities and Online Health Event Pt.1

Unpacking the Man Box
The first event in this series will discuss the findings from the 'Unpacking the Man Box Report'

Based on a survey of 1,000 Australian men aged 18 – 30, the report finds that rigid adherence to masculine norms has a stronger impact on negative life outcomes compared with occupation, where someone lives, sexuality, education level and cultural heritage. Negative life outcomes can include violence, sexual harassment, mental ill-health and binge drinking.

The panellists will discuss these findings, share how positive cultural change about what it means to be a man can be achieved, and explore the implications for governments and front-line practitioners.

Panellists include
- Matt Tyler, Executive Director of The Men’s Project at Jesuit Social Services
- Lula Dembele, Founder of Accountability Matters Project and Voices for Change Survivor Advocate
- Associate Professor Michael Flood, Queensland University of Technology
- Matthew Gmalifo Mabefam, Sessional Academic at The University of Melbourne
